Handmade Totes Fabric Bags Designed
Nike mercurial vi indoor for many years I have sewed for my family’s needs, such as making pillow covers for the bed, or throw pillows for the sofa. I could use any piece of fabric or a skirt that was no longer used, and turn that into a pillow cover.
Later on I joined the quilters group in my small town to learn new designs. I was reluctant outdoor soccer shoes to nike mercurial vi indoor buy new fabric and cut it into squares to make a quilt. I remember buying only for my learning sample piece and for a twin size quilt.
The ladies of the quilters group knew that I like to reuse fabric to make a quilt. One day there was a large white sack in front of my door, filled with fabric remnants of quilting, such as left over blocks or cut up pieces for projects that had never been finished. I was delighted, sorted everything, and thought of making small throw pillows. I actually made more than a couple and donated several to the local library for a program called Pajama Story Time. The librarian gave them to the kids to use while they were laying down to listen to the story.
I started selling pillows and some other items at a local Saturday market and at Christmas Bazaars. I did this for a few years, and then my husband helped me start a store on eBay (in 2003). I incorporated home dcor items such as tapestry products (mainly decorative pillows at first) with my handmade pillow covers. Later I started making tote bags and some Victorian style hats, and expanded my tapestry line with unfinished panels and wallhangings.
Now, after several years in business, my focus is on various types of bags, including totes, purses, grocery bags, and shoulder/messenger bags besides my tapestry products. I love to search for that beautiful fabric outdoor soccer shoes to make my bags individual, and utilize remnants for some of my embelishments.
